BOSTON -- The city of Boston has agreed to pay $200,000 to a parking meter attendant who has been out of work since an irate motorist scalded her with hot coffee in January.
The Boston Globe reported that Christi Noviello's settlement with the city also calls for her to resign.
Noviello filed a workers' compensation claim following her run-in with motorist Francois Youhanna outside a Starbucks in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood.
Youhanna allegedly tossed coffee in Noviello's face, giving her first-degree burns, after she gave him a $55 ticket for parking his Hummer is a loading zone.
Noviello also has agreed to settle an unrelated sexual harassment lawsuit she filed against the city in 2003.
Both sides are still working out the final details of the settlement, but a spokesman for Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said the city has not admitted any liability.
